Bruins Bounce Back
Game 3 in Montreal was a good game for the Bruins. The Bruins showed life early in the game and continued to play well throughout the game. For the first time in the series the B's struck first with a goal from David Krejci. Nathan Horton added another goal in the first, Rich Peverley in the second and Chris Kelly finished off the Habs with an empty netter in the third.
Overall this was an impressive game for the Bruins. They moved the puck much better in this game than they had previously, and jumped on the Canadiens netminder Carey Price early, which was vital as he had been lights out in the first 2 games of the series.
Tim Thomas was finally himself in net, making 34 saves and giving the Bruins a real chance in the game. He came up with huge saves and further cemented himself in the starting role after his subpar performances in the first 2 games of the series. Bruins and Habs play again tomorrow, Thursday the 21st, and look to build on their strong performance and tie the series at 2 games apiece.
